Waterfall Bliss

I’m into my 3rd month as a #BeClearAmbassador with La Roche-Posay,  and I have to say I’m as excited as I was the first day I received news of my ambassadorship from this luxe French skincare brand.

Each time I apply my EFFACLAR Serum Pore-Refining Anti-Aging Serum, it truly feels like a fresh splash from a waterfall on my face. And, since I just had the opportunity to visit my first waterfall in Baños, Ecuador, South America, I thought it so befitting to share my experience in conjunction with this amazing skincare product. Simply blissful!

I’ve been chosen as a La Roche-Posay Be Clear Ambassador!

Hey everyone! I have really great news to share… I’ve been chosen as a La Roche-Posay Be Clear Ambassador!  (La Roche-Posay provided a product sample for review purposes, and all opinions are clearly my own).

The timing for representing this amazing product couldn’t have been better, as I was just planning my summer adventures & wondered how I was going to travel, hike mountains, & bathe in volcanic waterfalls without creating any damage to my skin. Needless to say, I was so excited to have as part of my skincare arsenal LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS 50 MINERAL ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID  .

Not only did it protect my skin, but it gave me the freedom to go carefree of any sunburn to my fair complexion…priceless!

Pioneer Winter // Collective HOST

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend my colleague and friend, Pioneer Winter’s, brilliant presentation of HOSTphysical theatre performance. For me to attempt to describe in words would not do justice to such an intelligent work that truly takes you through an experience, a journey of emotions. Here is Pioneer’s description:

“HOST is an all-male physical theatre work that explores power, authority, control, isolation, and desire. Within these paths, the word ‘host’ emerges as both sexualized territory as well as a bodily struggle. ‘Host’ is layered in the queer community, where one word is weighted by both history and its digital presence – host of a dinner party, host of a game show, host to an orgy, host to a virus…
HOST by Pioneer Winter and Jared Phillip Sharon

Performers: Patrick Rodriguez, Dario Gonzalez, Alex Ortiz, Alberto Pena Jr., Pioneer Winter

Sound and composition: ABI-LI-TY”

 

Here are some of the photos captured that night with my dear friend and fellow choreographer/dancer, Ana Bolt, along side HOST creators and performer.

South Beach Wine and Food Festival 2016

This year I was very graciously invited to attend my first ever #SOBEWFF , specifically the Goya Grand Tasting Village! The event was situated right on the sand in the heart of South Beach on 13th Street, & the weather was perfect!

Have a look at some of the fun pics I captured with my friend and creative writer Yvette M. Calleiro,  author of fantasy fiction series The Chronicles of the Diasodz.

Needless to say, I had the most fun sampling my custom Coke floats & illy coffees! :))

Monroe County Tourism Photoshoot – Behind the Scenes!

This week, I had a wonderful opportunity, thanks to my fantastic model & print agent, to work on a Monroe County Tourism campaign for the Florida Keys & Key West , shot by film & production company McCray Martin.

Here, I got caught photobombing a couple of the other models between takes…oops!IMG_6219

Then, I got photobombed myself by the photographer..lol!02

The director & crew were equally professional & so much fun to work with at the same time. It was also hard to believe the FREEZING temps we experienced here in Florida.               Still, the shoot was a success!

Enjoy the rest of the sneak peak behind the scenes 😉

2015 Strikers Cheerleaders Halloween Halftime Production

Would you believe that we managed to pull off this little production number for my Fort Lauderdale Strikers Cheerleaders team in just 2 weeks?!

It was such a fun way to wrap up our hugely successful season and celebrate the Halloween holiday. This special production featured our very own HOTSHOT-Strikers Mascot, performing with his “Dolls” as our “Puppet Master”.

It was a blast!
